PreK-Grade 12 International Day and Boarding School in Kobe, Japan | Since 1913


Welcome to CA - we're glad you're here!


As one of Japan's foremost international schools we are as proud of our heritage as we are of the innovative teaching and learning that happens at Canadian Academy every day. As a parent seeking the best educational experience for your child we appreciate that you have multiple options before you and we are honored that you have chosen to consider us in your search.


World-class Facilities, Endless Opportunities

Through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programmes we take students beyond the walls of the classroom, engaging in local, national, and international opportunities. A rigorous and creative academic program prepares them to be ready to take on the world.

Although by some standards we are small, the programs and experiences we offer, all within world class facilities, separate us from other schools. Our small class size and low student to teacher ratio ensure our students receive the attention and support they deserve - delivering results you, and they, can be proud of. Our strong pastoral care focuses on their emotional wellbeing, helping them to be the best they can be.

Worldwide Connections

The influence and reach of being part of Canadian Academy stretches well beyond our current students. A long and rich history ensures stability and trust. With time comes dedicated alumni, offering support and networks throughout the world.

The alumni network gained from being here provides support, guidance, and inspiration to all its members. As new graduates set out on their lives, Falcons can be found the world over, ready to offer assistance, encouragement and advice.

We invite your family to schedule a tour, or have a conversation with our Admissions team, to discover if Canadian Academy could be the right fit for your child.

An Education for the Future

Through a range of innovative programs we provide student experiences that inspire and learning opportunities that last a lifetime.  From supporting our communities through service to internship and mentor programs, we are committed to developing international mindedness and a strong sense of social justice through student led initiatives for all ages.

Strength in

We are enriched by the cultural diversity and experiences of our community. Over forty nationalities stand permanently ready to welcome new families. We find strength in both our similarities and our differences - celebrating both through cultural and social events throughout the year. We understand the value of our international context while valuing and engaging with our local roots and host city and culture.

Academic Success & Creative Growth

Both inside and outside the classroom we provide opportunities for academic success and creative growth.  We encourage all our students to open their minds to the opportunities available to them. While many of our graduates attend some of the finest universities around the world, it will doubtless be the memories of international travel for sport tournaments; music or drama exchanges or the discussions of the classrooms that stays with them.

Our students never cease to amaze - their passion, dedication, and the results they achieve make us who we are and what sets us apart from others.
